The new Convrt Award is now accepting entries in Retail Design, Technology, and Experiences. Labeled as the “largest celebration of retail,” Convrt will recognize innovative work across the rich layers of commerce with nearly 50 categories for both projects and solutions.

Categories include creative projects like Store Design, Displays, and Visual Merchandising to technologies like Digital Signage Experiences, Ecomm, Extended Reality, and Analytics. For the first time ever, Convrt will recognize solution providers who support retail’s back-of-house, including Payments, Robotics, Blockchain, and Logistics. Convrt’s ethos is to treat all entrants equally, whether it’s a nimble startup or an established enterprise, regardless of the size of entry.

"There's no club you need to be in, nothing to sponsor, no paid event to attend, and no one you need to know. Independent Judges only care about one thing–your work," said Amy Rieber, Producer.

The Convrt Award
The 2023 Convrt Awards online entry window will close on Friday, March 31, and winners will be announced in May 2023.

Who Can Enter the Awards
Any company, whether big or small that prides itself in executing or solving a real problem for a live client in the commerce space is encouraged to apply. Participants from all over the world are welcome; the project or product entered must be a concept built or updated during 2021-2022.

“Retail, whether in-store or online, is the human-centered industry that touches everybody,” says Douglas Hampton-Dowson, Founder of The Convrt Award, “We hear a lot of negatives, but it’s exploding with creativity and innovation.”

“For years, there’s been no independent, authentic standard to recognize the designers, creators, engineers, solution providers, and innovators behind the scenes of shopping. These teams are constantly bringing new experiences to life for brands and customers worldwide, and we’re so excited to appreciate their work finally.”

“The award seeks to honor the true innovators and creators that are bringing NEW life into the world of retail and e-commerce, for those who create and break things but don’t often see their names in bold lights,” said Amy Daughtery.
